Course Type: Risk management
The FIU CONNECT (Fundamental AML) training program from ManchesterCF has been developed to help FIUs strengthen their defences against financial crime and harden the foundation of their AML compliance regime.
Financial intelligence units in both the public and private sectors face immense challenges keeping compliance controls in line with increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.
Financial institutions and their supervisory bodies must ensure that they have in place a solid compliance regime as well as the requisite expertise to identify and mitigate money laundering and terrorist financing risks.
Those who fail to meet the standards set by governments and legislators face monetary penalties, sanctions and settlements stretching into the billions of dollars.
The course was developed by experienced compliance specialists with backgrounds in financial intelligence, law enforcement and international banking.
The course is not designed to reference the various laws and regulations within a jurisdiction or region but rather to provide an international perspective on the subject.
For those joining an FIU, the course provides a solid foundation in AML/ATF. Participation in this program means that management can rest assured a minimum training threshold has been implemented within the FIU. Course components include a digital textbook, computer-based training and an examination.
Regulators are demanding increased attention to detail within a financial institution’s AML/ATF training. ManchesterCF’s solutions meet then exceed those expectations.
